Research Interests

My research mainly focus on Small Shelly Fossils (SSFs), the earliest animals with mineralized skeletons from the Cambrian (about 542 Ma). It was a significant innovation for animals to acquire the capacity to produce a variety of biominerals in an astounding range of organizations and functions. Currently, I am working on Cambrian molluscs and hyoliths, two very common invertebrate creatures in the fossil record. I aim to try to understand their relationships to other lophotrocozoan animals, particularly the brachiopods, by analysing their similarities in shell microstructures, accretion patterns and morphology.
